Tash From Port Joana — The Psychology Of Choosing What To Give A Fck About

I have a very special guest today in the Grow Podcast: Tash from Port Joana. Natasha Nomathamsanqawenkosi Manzungu is as awesome as her name is long.

I am very happy that she found some time in her busy schedule to do the podcast with me. One of the goals of my psychology podcast is to portray extraordinary people who are successful in their own way. Tash definitely fits these criteria. She has a playful and hilarious way of describing her journey from Zimbabwe to the stages of Germany where she entertains thousands of people.

To me, success is when people actively design their life after their true desires and add value to the world. Even when it means to go against the grain. Tash very early decided against taking over her family empire because she wanted to follow her own calling in life. I think in this conversation there is a gold nugget for everybody.

Tash’s journey is nothing short of a spectacular success story and I am excited to see whats next in her adventure.
